Quick Tip: Navigate Dropbox Files in a Tree Like Structure

Old habits never die, do they? One day while I was browsing through my files on Dropbox, I felt that it would be so easy to navigate through the folders if only I had them in a collapsible tree-like structure in the sidebar, just like we have it in Windows Explorer.

Indeed, by default, there is no such feature in the online Dropbox portal but with the help of a little trick, we can get it easily. All you need to do is download and install Dropbox Plus, a small JavaScript in your browser.

Installing Dropbox Plus

Chrome users can directly head over to the download page and click the Install button to do the needful. Firefox users will have to install GreaseMonkey – a small add-on – to handle the script. Opera users can follow this guide and install the script.

The script is plug and play in nature. As soon as you install the script and restart your browser, the next time you open your Dropbox account you will see all the folders in a tree-like structure in the sidebar providing easier navigation in between the folders.

So try out the script if you have to access the online Dropbox portal often enough for file operations. Don’t forget to share your views on the trick.
